They will coordinate all communication efforts with the support of the other members of the Department of Communications, and lead Department of Communications meetings.

What is the time commitment for the Director of Communications?

Outside of meetings, the expectation for the Director is 5 - 10 hours per week of SGA-related work. Note that some weeks may be more involved than others. Your SGA work should not get in the way of self-care time and studying for your classes - you come first! 

What do you get in return as the Director of Communications? 

This is the perfect opportunity to make your mark on the UMBC community, and work with students, faculty, staff, and administrators to make meaningful change for years to come. You will have an essential role in the way students view and interact with SGA and, consequently, the work SGA does. The Director of Communications is also paid an annual stipend.
